This is assessment 2 of 4.
    
Background/Overview
Having started as a counsellor at Real Matters Community Centre, you begin to understand the organisation’s requirements for the intake procedure.
This means using a structured counselling approach to establish a professional relationship with the clients according to Industry guidelines. It will become important for you to understand the underpinning principles of client-centred delivery and your legal and ethical obligations as a counsellor.
Throughout your career, you may be faced with challenging, and sometimes upsetting, situations that require you to follow established workplace guidelines regarding these legal and ethical frameworks, such as mandatory reporting.
Brief
For this assessment, you will be demonstrating your ability to understand the legal and ethical frameworks in which you will be working, including understanding of mandatory reporting and building the counselling relationship.
You will need to consider the needs of the clients that appear throughout the task, which will provide you with a context to work within.
This assessment is split into four parts – Part A, Part B, Part C and Part D.
Part A requires you to complete an intake form that you need to fill in having read a script of a conversation between Lin (the telephone counsellor) and the client (Tony).
Part B consists of short answer questions about communication (within stated word count + or – 10%).

Part C consists of short answer questions about legal and ethical considerations (within stated word count + or – 10%).
Part D requires you to draft an email to the centre supervisor about record keeping and confidentiality.
